If this case has taught us anything – its that the Rules of Evidence lag well behind digital technology and forensics creating a need for the current state and federal legislation to be updated concerning the inspection, interpretation and collection of, digital evidence along with digital devices – and proactive digital evidence and forensics
educational programs for local and state government employees need to be instituted and/or significantly updated.
In the Doc Bekkum case, iPhone text messages were used to support the complainant’s narrative. She had no witness of her own to support her allegations. The only known witness was Dr. Bekkum’s daughter who completely disputed the complainant’s testimony in a declaration, but it was after the trial. Being able to decipher real from fabricated screenshot digital text messaging is paramount in this case. From the collection to the Exhibit – the pathway must be squeaky clean.
Even the 2017 Authenticating Digital Evidence by Daniel Capra of Fordham University School of Law is now, only 6 years later, somewhat outdated as technology rapidly advances. The white paper notes:
This is where I first learned the term of political fraud pandering. American Homeowners thought they had a cheerleader and it turns out Marcy Kaptur and the rest of her political cronies were just another bunch of do nothing politicians. They had the chance to write legislation to outlaw the fraudulent securitization schemes, robo-signing and UNREGULATED DERIVATIVE and they did nothing! The small in consequential crap they did do, like the $25 million National Mortgage Settlement that Kamala Harris oversaw, was a drop in the bucket to the TRILLION$ of debt the banks created from Americans’ mortgages and never helped the over 56+ million American families that lost, short sales, or walked away from their homes. This and other bank/government “settlements” were just a smokescreen leading up to another election.
This is a must see for everyone in Hawaii and other states with high pension deficits and experimental vaccine mandates for union employees. By Sydney Sullivan
Take into account that it appears Hawaii has “gambled” the pension funds and has BILLION$ in deficits in UNREGULATED DERIVATIVES and bad investments. If they fire people it is likely these union members won’t get their pensions until retirement age – if they are even available at that time. If people quit now and take their pension funds from whatever they are using to make pension payments, might be better because they they might not see their pensions when they retire. Just a thought. Hawaii’s largest public pension fund hits a record $14B shortfall and State public funds’ shortfall hits $25B
“Shortfall” – laugh out loud. “Shortfall” – a clever term for “we’ve lost your money”. It appears, as American Homeowners completely understand, it is more likely bad investments and gambling debts.
Sometimes (most of the time) we have to wonder – whose bright idea was the foreclosure and eviction moratorium? Did they have no sense of consequence? The idea in and of itself was good at the time – but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Why in the world would the Congress agree to a moratorium of mortgage payments be allowed to use a “forbearance” program?! Here we go again.

NEW REPORT FROM CONSUMER FINANCIAL PROTECTION BUREAU FINDS OVER 11 MILLION FAMILIES AT RISK OF LOSING HOUSING Federal foreclosure moratorium slated to end June 30, 2021 WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued a report that warns of widespread evictions and foreclosures once federal, state, and local pandemic protections come to an end, absent additional public and private action. Over 11 million families are behind on their rent or mortgage payments: 2.1 million families are behind at least three months on mortgage payments, while 8.8 million are behind on rent. Homeowners alone are estimated to owe almost $90 billion in missed payments. The last time this many families were behind on their mortgages was during the Great Recession.
The stories you are about to read are relatively true with some poetic liberties, the names have been changed to protect the innocent. God took care of the guilty.
Karma comes from the Sanskrit word, karam, or action. The Law of Karma talks about the consequences of our actions. Or in other words, cause and effect. You may or may not call it karma, but for most of us, we have one of the following ideas already implanted.
You reap what you sow –
What goes around comes around –
You get what you give –
Life always come “full circle” –
How does this apply to bank foreclosure attorneys?
In the process of research for a homeowner in the throws of foreclosure hell, albeit stayed in moratorium for the purposes of COVID as a “Federally backed mortgage loan” pursuant to the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), a little unknown gem of information surfaced.
Regarding the 2020 Foreclosure & Eviction Moratorium
By Sydney Sullivan
For nearly a dozen years, we have followed the securitization/rehypothecation crisis and corruption on behalf of over 200 million American Homeowners (2.5 per HH) and their families. It’s been a tough 12 years and some families are still fighting fraudulent bank foreclosures since 2009. Can you even imagine a lawsuit and the threat of losing your home for over a decade, waking up every morning wondering when the sheriff is coming to throw you, your family and your belongings out on the street?
Thank you in advance for considering our plight. We applaud your “Moratorium” on evictions and foreclosures and the extension which you added just this week – but Sirs, it’s very limited. It doesn’t reach a lot of people that are in dire need and let us tell you why.
This is profoundly brilliant. I don’t know who he is other than “Milton” was on the link that was sent to me. I wish I could articulate this sad state of affairs we find our country in today as well as he has.
If Twitter wasn’t so juvenile and painfully politically biased this Twitter prison sentence wouldn’t be worth my time to post. But since COVID-19 has turned into a political weapon rather than a imminent concern, its very hard to take any politician seriously on the subject.
As litigation paralegals, we research everything and weigh the evidence. There is more information available that confirms face masks are more unhealthy than any good they actually do. In the early phases of this COVID scare, we made over 200 masks for our local community. We were careful to use recommended material and even added an iron-on interfacing with more secure strapping.
But as time went on, people in the stores had paper masks hanging off their faces and more stories about how useless masks were against such a tiny virus began to surface. Dr. Fauci didn’t help either. One day he was “no masks needed” and the next time “wear masks”. And let’s face it, politicians are not always the brightest light bulbs on the planet – so whatever they hear last is where they stand.
